Aurora's Info...

Aurora's Story...
We welcomed Mama Aurora into our program July 27, 2015 *extremely* pregnant. We visited the Ft. Bend Animal Shelter to see the pitties they had available and we stopped at her kennel. She looked up at us and the volunteer we were walking with let us know that she "won't get up for anybody." And upon hearing those words and seeing us coo at her kennel, Aurora got up and walked her uncomfortable self over to us. While not "super pittie" like many others we have accepted (we think she is a pit bull/lab/bullmastiff/etc mix), her story broke our hearts and we decided her life mattered too. 3 days later and her 8 babies entered this world. Aurora was a *fantastic* mother -- better than any other mama dog we have ever had -- and after getting all of her puppies adopted, it was finally her turn in the spotlight.

Aurora was spayed and began her heartworm treatment early in 2016 when she was sadly diagnosed with Evan's Syndrome - a noncontagious autoimmune disorder that causes the body to attack itself. Her wonderful foster mom Amanda and the lovely Dr. Val of Tabor Road have worked hard for the past several months to get Aurora balanced and on a manageable, affordable amount of medications that keep Aurora stable, healthy, and happy.

Aurora has been in our program for over a year with minimal interest. While she is technically classified as ";special needs," you would not know it by just meeting her. This girl is a happy, bubbly, delightful dog who wants nothing more than to cuddle and be pet all day, every day. While she would prefer to be the only dog in the home, she has done surprisingly well with cats. Additionally, Aurora *adores* people -- this girl is the definition of a "people dog!" Any and all kinds of people are her people -- she just needs someone to give her a chance!

Aurora is otherwise healthy, happy, and ready for her forever home. To adopt Aurora, please visit www.mylongwayhome.org/pitbulls/adopt or if you have any further questions regarding Aurora's health or treatment, please email amanda@mylongwayhome.org

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Aurora, a College Station Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever for sale in College Station, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in College Station.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in College Station already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a College Station breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in College Station paves the way for another one to be saved.
